Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr. met NBA star Lebron James at a LA Lakers game, making a ‘childhood dream’ of the Brazilian’s come true

A ‘child’s fantasy’ came true when the Los Blancos winger spent Christmas Day in the United States, attending a Los Angeles Lakers game from the courtside and then spending time with NBA superstar Lebron James. Together, the two individuals signed inscriptions, posed for photographs, and exchanged jerseys.

In addition to being a minority investor in English club Liverpool, James’s enthusiasm for soccer is widely recognized. Each year on Christmas Day, the NBA hosts a multi-game showcase that attracts celebrities, fans, and stars to cheer on their favored team. On Friday evening, the 23rd, USMNT star Gio Reyna was photographed courtside at a Brooklyn Nets game while also spending his holiday observing the sport.

The Madrid superstar remains inactive due to an injury sustained in November while representing Brazil. Nonetheless, his return to the field is imminent, with the end of January serving as his target date. He was sidelined for ten weeks and is currently undergoing rehabilitation.
